Description

Sweet Freedom 2017! is our second annual event co-sponsored by Oasis House & Safe Harbor House. This event is an evening full of delicious locally made sweet treats, dance performances, vocal performances, visual arts, and information. There will be silent auctions for both full size, mind-blowing cakes as well as amazing art work. This evening is created to entertain, inform, and educate those attending in regards to what exactly Safe harbor and Oasis house's do.


A Note from the Directors of both houses:

This year, we are inviting community leaders, faith leaders, and business owners to join us for a special niche conversation on a very relevant sub-topic! Yes, we will still provide some basic education on the topics of domestic sex-trafficking, trauma, and addiction in our communities. But we also want to refine our conversation! Keep reading, if you're curious, and plan to join us onTuesday, November 14 at 7:00 PM.

What is this niche conversation? We will be talking about umbrellas. Yes, you read that correctly.

Cheryl and I have found that most people feel like they could never do enough to stem the tidal wave of domestic sex-trafficking, trauma, and addiction in our communities. And in many ways, they are right. No one organization or person can do it all.

But we can all do something. We would love to issue this compelling possibility to every business leader, every community advocate, every faith-leader - we can all mentor one survivor! We can all fit one more person under our umbrella.

Do you own a Hair Salon and Day Spa? Could you help one survivor renew her cosmotology license?Do you own a marketing firm? Could you take on one apprentice and customize a learning process for someone who deserves a second chance at life and a vocation?Do you own a dog grooming business? Can you imagine how therapeutic AND empowering it could be for a woman who has suffered from complex PTSD to join the team of a thriving canine business? :) Really, we hope just these three simple examples have fueled your imagination for how YOU can be a part of mountain-moving work on behalf of just ONE survivor.


So, we are asking you for TWO things. 1.) We are asking you to come and make a generous donation to support the huge, sheltering impact of both Safe Harbor House and Oasis House. You will have a wonderful, inspiriting, educational, artsy, and dessert-filled evening, and the great feeling of walking away knowing you've supported two organizations that are on the front lines of this battle every day. 2.) We are asking you to join this fascinating conversation about mentorship, apprenticeship, employment, and social enterprise - a literal brainstorm that could surprise us all. Together, we could turn the tide in this conversation!


Sincerely,

Cheryl Oliver and Amy Willmann
